Drumming means to me:

A whole lot!

Advice for up and coming drummers:

Get a good teacher to strengthen the foundation. Also, fool around on the piano or guitar so that you’ll be able to relate and contribute not only rhythmically to the music, but also melodically and harmonically. Then start writing your own music. Last but not least: Take care of your body.

Tall, grateful (got four healthy kids), and somewhat a perfectionist.
